Suppressors have been steadily gaining in popularity over the last decade, and larger, more traditional firearms manufacturers have taken notice. Since the sunset of the federal Assault Weapons Ban more than ten years ago, it hasn't been terribly unusual to see a rifle with a threaded barrel directly from the factory–but same hasn't been true of handguns. However, very recently we've seen an increase in their availability. Browning already has a suppressor-ready Buck Mark (with a continuous top rail, making it an excellent host for a red dot sight as well) but they didn't yet have anything for that ‘full-size feel'. Recently, they announced a pair of threaded Black Label 1911-22's for that purpose.

Here's what they have to say about them:

For 2016 Browning is introducing two pistols that come factory ready to accept suppressors. Now shooters have the option of shooting the fun Browning 1911-22 with reduced noise.

The Black Label 1911-22 Full Size Suppressor Ready with Rail and the Black Label 1911-22 Compact Suppressor Ready with Rail will feature threaded muzzle ends ready for suppressors. The pistols come from the factory with muzzle protectors on the threaded portion of the barrels. The Full Size pistol has a 4 ¼” length barrel and the Compact a 3 5/8” barrel length. The engineering grade composite frame features an integrated accessory rail on the dust cover. Steel three-dot fixed combat sights are dovetailed into the slide. The grips are textured G-10 composite. An extended ambidextrous thumb safety and beavertail grip safety are also. Weight is approximately 14 oz.

The new Black Label 1911-22 Suppressor Ready rimfire pistols are available at your local Browning dealer.

Suggested Retail, $639.99.


Here's to hoping that the Browning Hi Power is next on the list.
